We pursued an extensive selection process to find the right advisor. We considered only M&A firms that had experience in our specific industry, with multiple deal successes. We ultimately selected Pharus, because it was our feeling that ‘these were actually nice guys.’ In the end, the advisor represents you and you work intensely together for an extended period…so it better be with a team you both like and trust. One powerful benefit was that Pharus also became a great source of intelligence to improve our business operations. Given their substantial insights into our industry, they really became our trusted advisors. And naturally, they are also effective negotiators. In the end, it was great teamwork that led to joint success. We had set the bar very high for a great transaction -- and we got it done!Huub WatervalFounder & CEO
